12 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

On Mi Razón de Ser, this Mazatlán ensemble continue their brassy variation on banda—and it’s a brisk march through catchy ranchera and corrido numbers. Expanding into a stage-bursting 16 members, the band gets more complex with its horn charts here (just try to follow the jagged interplay between trombones, clarinets, and trumpets on the breakneck title track), while Roberto Aguirre’s magnificent tuba holds down the rhythm. Even their most languid cheek-to-cheek ballads boast horn licks worth stealing.
